Vermaak se Kind ("Entertainment's child/Vermaak's child"?) is a 3-act comedy in Afrikaans by W.A. de Klerk (1917-1996).

The title is makes use of the double entendre presented by the Afrikaans surname "Vermaak" and the Afrikaans word for "entertainment", as well as being a reference to the Afrikaans expression "ek's nie vermaak se kind nie" (lit "I am not entertainment's child", i.e. "I am no fool", "I am not to be trifled/played with")
